101 in 1001 (Take Two)

In July of 2008, I took on a challenge to complete 101 tasks in 1001 days and I failed miserably. But I am encouraged to take another stab at it for a number of reasons. First of all because goals unwritten are merely wishes. Secondly, if successful, this will guarantee 101 new blog posts. I'm excited. So! Here we go.

The Mission: Complete 101 pre-set tasks in 1001 days.

The Criteria: The task must be specific (i.e. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable, or clearly defined; tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e. much represent some king of effort)
